Edwards-Heliare has been trending in the right direction all week, and FOX’s Jay Glazer reports that he will be active for Sunday’s AFC Championship game vs. the Bills. The timing is good for the Chiefs since Le’Veon Bell is not expected to suit up.
However, Darrel Williams has emerged as the Chiefs’ lead back recently, and he could retain that role even with Edwards-Helaire back in the lineup. He carried the ball 13 times for 78 yards last week vs. the Browns, resulting in an average of 6.00 yards per carry.
Whoever sees the majority of the rushing attempts vs. the Bills has a chance for a big game. Buffalo has been weak against the run this season, ranking just 17th in Football Outsiders’ rush defense DVOA.
The Chiefs are listed as three-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook, while the total sits at 54.5 points.
